Here at NCR4Less we want to provide the best service possible, this means we have experts in all fields in our offices, and on the phones. So, if you ever call us or pop in, you may hear a lot of very complex sounding terms. These are industry terms that often get bandied about when people are discussing design or graphics, conversations that often happen as we try and help our customers to make sure that they get exactly what they need from their NCR Pads.
Below are a few industry terms used in graphic design, so next time you call, you might have a rough idea what the team are saying!
CMYK – is also referred to as the four colour process. CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black). This is the colour process that refers to the four inks used in colour printing.
RGB – this stands for red, green and blue and is a colour mode used for all images shown through an electronic display, such as a computer or TV.
Trim – this is where the finished project will be trimmed by precise machinery to the exact final size.
Bleed – this refers to an area outside of the final trim that allows for small intolerances and inaccuracies during the print process which accounts of movement of the paper etc.
Vector Image – a vector image is made up of ‘paths’ and ‘curves’ as opposed to a grid of pixels. This means that they can be blown up and shrunk down to any size without ever losing quality.
JPEG – A JPEG is a graphic image file that contains bitmaps. They were originally produced for the full colour and grey-scale images of real-world scenes, and not for cartoons or lettering.
With these few terms you should have a better understanding of the team here at NCR4Less when we are trying to produce your NCR and duplicate pads.
NCR4Less have the equipment and know-how to produce any kind of NCR Pad. Have a look around our website, and if you have any questions you can call us 0113 2000 603.
